Baby blanket sagging NEW

Hi Lillian!

It might be a dropped stitch somwhere, but chances are, it is simply the fact that you are "in the process, and working/handling the yarn in a bigger width, and all it will take when you are done, is "Blocking"!

Blocking is what you do with heat and steam, , after you have shaped it,. IT tighten's up and straightens out the fibers. It is NO biggie! There are blogs and youtube vids that deal with blocking for both wool and acrylic! (And sometimes, pust pulling it into place, and washing it, does the same thing. The yarn gets stretched while working - (we ALL go through it!).
